  1. is the laptop able to boot from usb devices?

    and ur going to need a big flash drive to do that.

    also a good software to use to make back ups is

    PowerQuest Drive Image 2002 if u dont want to use the windows one which most people dont.
  2. I would use Snapshot Disk Imaging

    Afterwards get your USB drive ready with an empty NTFS primary active partition on it with the same size as your c partition on the laptop and just restore the image to the usb drive.
